, bring about democratic elections, that is not our job. we're good at building roads, crushing opposing armies. no government is good at the work of nation building, including ours. then there is the obama wave. find and concord. i do not want america to be in the business of turning every land into combat for democracy -- not democracy. >> they decide they will go to kill some americans. what difference does it make? >> is she there? you, and thank you for being nice to paul. i want to answer this. of course we are the world's policeman. it has been left to us. the extent we are unwilling prevent our people kids from going to school, we are the world's bullies. what we are not is the world's social worker. the false obligation to bring universal sovereign two countries, to make sure people can listen to madonna, these are worthy goals. we are good at the big tasks. building roads, opposing armies. no one is as good at nation building, including ours. >> next question, and, tucker, you will go first. federal debt does not matter. we can stimulate our way to prosperity. >> you are insane
went down in the last the election, too. >> went down from the standpoint that they lost to democrats unlike some of these mr. murdoch for instance. we are supposed to wonder chris richard murdoch, indiana. >> why we don't have the women's vote when we have a candidate suggesting that a child born as a result of rape is a gift from god. i'm not wondering why we don't have more women voting for republicans. >> chris: let me ask you about that. karl rove called the conservative victory project to try to get into the the primaries to make sure there are more electable republicans. congressman you are about to start your own super pac to promote electable candidates in republican primaries. have any problem with that. first of all, why do you think that is wrong? >> i think the definition of electable is what we are debating here and you you look at who has been winning elections. it has been interesting exciting young inne energetic e like ted cruz and marco rubio and if you apply the establishment litmus test which tends to be biased for people already in office you will not get the new
't want to view long-term solutions. they have to view short term for elections. with this sequester and families like we see oh "in american winter" it will probably get harder than it is already. >> i was shocked. completely shocked. they came up with a situation which was the worst case worst-case scenario for either side and then they went forward with it. things are so bad for citizens across the country i can't imagine what these cuts are going to do to families. i think there is a disconnect and inability to really look at what's going on. that's what we wanted to provide. we wanted to given a human face to what's going on in a families across the country. we did this in portland, but it's not about portland. it's about any city, any small town, any rural area. you can go anywhere and find families that are exactly like this. this is like garden variety poverty. this is not abject poverty. these families were comfortable many of them were middle class. then they lost their jobs. sometimes their jobs just disappeared. they got rid of all the people in their company and they cou
she picked was this man on the left, congressman tim scott. only first elected to the house in 2010. only had one term when he got the nod to move to the senate. thanks to that appointment, he was the first african-american senator south carolina has ever had. now it is his seat in the house that is vacant. and tomorrow, democrats and republicans hold their primary elections to try to fill that seat. on the democratic side, the nominee is expected to be elizabeth colbert bush. her brother uses a fancier pronunciation of the name, known as stephen colbert. on the republican side, the front runner almost as famous as stephen colbert and more famous than his sister but not for a good reason, former governor mark sanford. he has a big national profile, but it is because of his fake hiking trip. mark sanford apologized, finished his term as governor and withdrew from public life for two years. now he is back, trying to win back the public's trust and respect by trying to win back the congressional seat that he once held for three terms. mr. hiking the trail is only one of 16 republicans
rejected in the election. tomorrow, republicans are expected to vote for the ryan budget overwhelmingly and that has some democrats licking their chops. "the hill" reports that the democrats are ready to slam gop on the ryan budget putting this out on tut this ad before the 2 election. so go ahead, republicans, vote for that ryan budget. the american people are going to have a very different vote for you very soon. joining me now is congressman -- democratic congressman grayson and cynthia tucker. >> good to be here, reverend. >> it might be the worst one yet. how do you explain these republicans in the house? >> it's bad for seniors, bad for children, and it's bad for everyone, even white guys. it raises the debt by $6 trillion. that's $20,000 for every man, women, and child in this country for the sake of giving a $400,000 tax break to millionaires. the republicans are literally trying to bribe millionaires with their own money. >> cynthia, a new poll shows that paul ryan's favorability rating before the election in august was 50%. now it's down to 35%. they are following someone who
. >> trying to influence an american election. >> there's a lot of water under the bridge. >> i think it is absolutely outrageous. >> you only tease the ones you love. >> some republicans coil at the party plans for the future. >> i know what our principles are. >> the chairman is in the hot seat. >> i am looking to get into communities in the hundreds. >> show up any time. >> i know what our principles are. >> it is what you say and do when you get there matters most to people. >> our party believes marriage is between one man and one woman. >> they haven't changed their policies. >> house republicans tomorrow vote on the ryan budget. >> notorious paul ryan budget. >> putting out yet again a budget. >> an actual budget, political manifesto or long term liability? >> we are not going to refight the past. >> our budget and your budget contrast. >> what happens next? >>> republican re-branding week continues to go, well, badly. especially if you listen to republicans. >> if any party needed rebooting, our party did, but i don't know, i looked at the press conference, read some of the do
to be a default election, just as 2012 was. i have to -- i hate to do it, but we have to right there. anyway, thank yo thank you very, that is it for us, we hope you will be us tomorrow, congressman frank wolf of join us. on what is going on in the obama justice department, from new york. york. >> you know every liberal's dream that government seizing your money out right, there is nothing you can do about it. now no cyprus they could find out the hard way, this tiny island nation sent a tsunami shockwave to the rest of the world, keeping the banks closed until they find a more palatable way to. welcome i am neil cavuto, you got 10 grand in a bank account. how about waking up tomorrow morning and then finding a thousand bucks missing, right off the top, does that sound over the top? in cyprus that is reason that thousands of bankustomers are blowing their talk, with talk of a 10% tax on deposit the money, has a lot of angry customers storming the atm machines but the government has closed banks to avid a bank run, a keeping them close until they sort this out, but the tax is till coming. for
in the election. we, we already forgotten about november? when the republicans ran on the ryan budget. if they want to keep revisiting that, that's their choice. but why are we talking about this? we just find out that medicaid and medicare deliver health care cheaper than anything else? and they want to eviscerate that? it makes utterly no sense at all to me, anyway. >> howard, these seem to be sort of political manifestos, more than fiscal proposals. especially the ryan budget, over 40% of its savings are based on a repeal of obama care. which ain't going to happen any time soon. >> i agree, they are political. they aren't even opening negotiating positions, sometimes people set out markers that are designed to begin negotiations. these are political documents and they're speaking to their own parties. and the democrats have already said, look, you want to run on the ryan budget again, we've got some house races, coming up on 2014. did you that last time, we'll do it again. i think they're largely viewed as political documents, i agree with james. that the economy is poised right no
wedding rings and all other parts of straight life. the karl rove winning elections and the abolitionists wing are in for a prolonged situation. 2014 will be tough, but once these two gangs, the palin and rove crowds, have to meet again in 2016, it's not going to be pretty and sure as hell isn't going to be a marriage and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" starts right now. >>> good evening, americans, welcome to "the ed show." i'm michael eric dyson. elizabeth warren takes a stand for working class americans. michele bachmann has seen the light on infrastructure and might be getting off the appalachain trail and heading back to washington and a southern pastor makes a radical stand for justice. but tonight, we start with the tenth anniversary of the ed show. let's get to work. the shock and awe campaign was launched against -- a decade later, the forces behind with trying to revise that history. today, donald rumsfeld tweeted ten years ago, the long, difficult work of liberating 25 million iraqis deserve our respect and appreciation. put aside for the mome
and do what we have always done. what we're going to do is change the fact that when he got elected and other people got elected whether it is in austin or the delegation that has been sent to washington they are not representing half of the people for the people and by the people, and they have done a masterful job of gerrymandering the elections. we have to combat that. we have got to compete everywhere, and we have got to make people fight for those votes. so we'll let rick perry continue to talk and we'll go do our job. >> michael: texas hasn't voted for a democratic president since carter in 1976, a democratic senator since benson in '88. how long will it take? >> your point a good one. we -- democrats have lost the last 100-state-wide elections since 1994, 0 to 100. so we know this is a massive challenge, but we also know there is a ton of energy on the ground there volunteers donors supporters across the state who are ready to have their voices heard. so the context is going to depend on a couple of key factors, and some of that is how fast can we get th
'' brazen attempt to balance the budget on the backs of seniors. >> the election did not go our way -- believe me, i know what that feels like it does that mean we surrender our principles? forhe plan would cut taxes everybody and eventually replace medicare with a voucher plan, cut medicaid by over $700 billion in 10 years. do the democrats have a better idea, mark? >> the democrats have a better idea by basically not letting anything compete in the spotlight with paul ryan's. numbersho looks at believe that you can cut the deficit in 10 years while simultaneously increasing defense spending and cutting 35 to 28, as from mitt romney proposed, but 39 to 25%. it is just a pipe dream. >> are we ever going to settle this thing, lois? >> and then we might. i think the charm offensive is working a little bit. mitch mcconnell is speaking well of the president in saying that we have useful meetings. his biggest problem might end up being the democrats, trying to move them through some sort of entitlement reform. >> evan? >> maybe obama has got some secret plans to, but i don't see it. this
newspaper this morning -- a story by gina smith for the island. turnout will decide today's election for the first congressional seat in south carolina. gina smith is joining us on the phone this morning. gina smith, tell me about this race. who is running and why? guest: good morning. this is like christmas morning for me. i'm so excited. this is really an exciting race, because 18 republicans, two democrats, an incredibly crowded field but some of the names in this race just make it delicious to watch. we have mark sham ford, the former governor who most of the nation remembers as the guy who slipped out of the country in 2009 so he could visit his mistress, and he -- everyone thought he was hiking the appalachian trail but he was up with a female. so governor sanford is back on his redemption tour, we also family member 's and steven colbert, the comedian, his sister. and a lot of mudslinging which outh carolina is infamous for. host: so sanford is is leading for the primary? guest: yes. it was a comeback story that you thought if it happened it would be five or eight years from n
should have soul searching, particularly if you have an election like 2012 where there were a lot of things that made you feel like republicans could have won. you have the president who was not very popular. you have very high unemployment. you have a very weak economy. it was interesting that in the obama recovery, family income went down to $2,500 a year, where during the recession, income went down $1,500 a year. families were doing worse, yet in the campaign, obama ran an extremely good campaign, and he won despite his disadvantages and he won frankly in a predictable way. he made the election about his opponent. the romney people allowed obama to define romney. this was rather than romney defining romney, and that is why it is important for republicans to look back and say, what did we do wrong? the idea that the republican party is in some terrible shape -- >> you do not buy that? >> certainly i do not buy that. i have seen terrible shape. i remember watergate, i remember when the 13% of americans identified themselves as republicans, and the national chairman appointed peo
to the specifics. watch for the senators from red states up for re-election and the pressure is greatest on them. they are away two weeks now from washington, back home, and there will be pressure on them. they will hear from their constituents about what to do from this. if you don't have much support, if any, among republicans, you need those democrats to get it through. >> hey, mark, give me a sense of harry reid's role in this. he wants to keep that title senate majority leader. navigating through these ice floes of this. >> it's already on the side of those who would like to see a large package, including a pretty big risk background check provision. it's not clear to me what more opponents can be to put pressure on senator reid. senator reid has a long history with the nra. they did not support him in his re-election race and i think he is looking for a path that not only protects his own views on gun control and not only tries to accommodate the white house but try to protect the majority. i think he is very stensive not just on guns but a range of issues too. all of these democrats are u
was going through your mind? >> you know, for me, i'm elected to congress and i take every vote seriously, but the vote to invade a sovereign nation, put our fighting americans at risk and go into this country, it has to be taken very seriously. and i've had several of these votes, of course. but what i look at is this country a threat to our national security. we had the classified briefings. with don rumsfeld and cheney and the whole group. they kept saying we have the weapons of mass destruction. there was a pesky little group of us and we kept saying show us the evidence. show us the evidence. they say, don't worry, we have the evidence. i'm not going to vote to send our fighting men and women into another country and waste all those lives and billions of dollars. just based on frankly on dick cheney's assurance, so i voted no. people did not believe that the white house would lie to them, and so they believed that iraq had these weapons, but they didn't and there was never proof they did. >> was it the fact there was no proof that led to your vote? were you objecting to the rush to j
they lost in the election. >> we have to do a lot better job and do a lot more to make up ground in minority communities with women and young voters. the rnc cannot and will not write off any demographic community or region of this country. >> make up ground with women in minorities? really? then why did the republicans in arkansas ran through a new voter i.d. bill to suppress the minority vote? why do they poise the ban all in a state, a state that has the most restrictive laws in the country? during the election, president obama promised change we can believe in and he's delivering. republicans promise change, too. but nobody believes in it, least of all the republicans. joining me now are krystal ball and joan walsh. thanks for being here tonight. >> thanks for having us, reverend. >> do the republicans not notice their rhetoric, that it doesn't mesh with their reality? >> i don't know, to be honest with you. because on the one hand, they see the demographic trends. the rnc conducted an autopsy of their dead party. we know that there's a problem. >> we call it a flawtopsy. >> on the other
release their autopsy on the 2012 election. it turns out they say that voters basically see them as clint eastwood's character in gran torino. also they are really bad at technology and they debate too much, they are failing math and have no friends, but besides all of that, shipshape. i'm michael shure this is "the war room." [♪ theme music ♪] >> michael: the republicans are taking a serious look at why they have become such an unserious party in the eyes of the american people. as the conservative pep rally that was cpac finally wrapped up this weekend, reality seem stoetd in. republican leaders took a look in the mirror and beheld their hideous reflection. they realized they better get their campaign on and lost that bet. and really how can anyone take a party seriously who's biggest contribution to the conversation were 47%, self deportation and shuting that whole thing down. and all of that shrinking about greece and the looming debt crisis. here is john boehner and paul ryan just this weekend. >> we do not have an immediate debt crisis. >> america
direction the national democrats want to and winning elections with that approach. there is a lot to be learned both by the failure of the romney campaign in the senate races in the success of the republicans have had at the state level. >> host: we are taking your calls with grover norquist with americans for tax reform. our farmland or open democrats (202)585-3880 and republicans (202)585-3881. grover norquist known as an expert on some of these budget issues. you bring up the senate budget that we saw from budget chairwoman patty murray last week. talk about that and how you think it compares to paul ryan's budget? >> there are two major differences and they certainly going different directions. paul ryan's budget balances in 10 years and is not raise taxes and patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the 600 million-dollar tax increase that obama won in january and they trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of and they don't know
or $20 million in every election cycle literally buys vehicles, because the american public doesn't president in our democracy. if the listeners out there did one thing and one thing only one take away right now, it's call the -- the congress the switchboard, 202-224-3121, ask to speak to your elected officials wherever you are from whatever state, whatever district, and tell them to stand up to the gun industry. stand up to the nra and their nonsense that is killing 87 americans every day, require a background check for gun sales, prohibit the sale of magazine ammunition magazines, you know, over ten rounds when police are carrying 13 and are out gunned by criminals, and then let's bring the assault weapon ban up for a vote. it's the common denominator used in all of the major mass shootings in public places, the american people want it, the majority of gun owners support it, and it's simply the nra and their blood money contributors and the gun industry that are keeping our kids from dying unnecessarily from gun violence. >> michael: i was so frustrated
. >> neil: and the glad stuff -- >> after the 2012 election. now the president said if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. you won't be able to find your doctor because 50% of doctors are giving up their independent practice. the laws creates creates so many disincentives so many panels from a door who want to have a private practice. premiums are going up because the law requires insurance companies to cover more, to cover people with serious preexisting illnesses. >> neil: apparently a loot more than was forecast the way this thing was built. >> oh, yes. young people who were primary supporters of president obama are going to see 100% premium increases. >> neil: what is the $63 fee about? >> that's something that is hitting employers. a lot of surprises for employers. >> neil: a identify they have not to pay. >> just rolls out in november. among the thousands of new regulation. employers are frantic because they're coming so late in the game. le. >> neil: be part of the plan or not. but it's a fee -- >> for every employee -- every dependent who is covered with insurance. third
that parachutes into communities four months before an election. while that is how we operated years and years, and done well as compared to ourselves. in comparison to the other side, the obama campaign lived in these communities for years. the relationships were deep. they were authentic. >> he is absolutely right. >> yeah. priebus announced 10 million dollar plan funded by the rnc that would focus on establishing permanent footholds in african-american and asian communities. they would begin their campaign sooner. >> a great idea too. he was talking about a june or july convention. >> right. >> less debates. >> less debates. >> i think it's great. >> for the next presidential election cycle which makes a lot of sense. maybe seven or eight of them instead of 23. to stop the party from cannibalizing itself later on. it's sort of looking like rebranding. >> what is wrong? you don't like that idea? >> i think it will be hard to enforce. >> why is that? >> a lot of media organizations that want to do debates and the party can't stop those organizations from offering to do debates and candidates
, it will be increasingly difficult for republicans to win another presidential election in the near future. host: you heard chairman reince priebus talking about that $10 million inclusion effort, one of the many recommendations that he's set to give at the national press club this morning. you can actually watch that on one of our sister networks at 8:30. here's the headline from the "usa today" on that effort. republicans to spend $10 illion on inclusion -- host: we'll be talking about that in the first 45 minutes of the "washington journal" today. we're taking calls from just republicans. up first is bob from philadelphia, pennsylvania. bob, thanks for calling in this morning. caller: good morning. how are you, sir? host: good. your thoughts on this new effort? caller: i think that they are still missing a little bit of the point here. i think the biggest problem is uninformed voters. all they hear all day long is just background noise from mainstream media. i was a staunch liberal democrat. i truly was, until i started doing my own research and finding my own facts. even my mom and dad were staunch lib
has been working on a way to rally the faithful and plot a new strategy for the midterm election in 2014 and presidential contest in 2016. one of the silver linings which happened along the way is getting reelected as party chairman. to create a playbook for his silver lining, he also commissioned an inward look to see why the party failed to win and how to get a different result next time. so what did he come up with? he said yesterday on cps' "face the nation" that the rnc will spend $10 million on staff to communicate its principles across the u.s., shorten the time spent on election primaries, move up the convention date and limit the number of primary debates. findings on the so-called occupancy are what brings him here this morning. he's also celebrating his 42nd birthday here on our stage. >> 43. >> 41, i'm sorry. [laughter] young enough that it won't make a difference. to celebrate his 41st birthday, please help me give a warm welcome to republican national committee chairman reince priebus. [applause] >> all right, thank you. prison -- [applause] well, i appreciate that
. bibi netanyahu would not an election by the skin of his teeth. he only just managed to put together a coalition. his right wing partners would not go along, i suspect work the complete freeze on settlements. on the palestinian side, they're showing there might be some little wiggle room. they might agree not to call for as they say, open freeze on settlements. a nudge and a wink. that's what the president is doing and saying, look. don't stay so far away from each other that you cannot even listen to each other anymore. just try and get a little closer. be practical. find the political language that will satisfy your own bases but get the peace deal done. >> the nudge and the wink. i like that. mr. richardson, one final question. let's look ahead to tomorrow when the president will be traveling to jordan. president obama has been very care wfl the u.s. involvement in syria but jordan is of course the country dealing with the syrian refugee crisis. more than 450,000 syrians have fled to jordan so far. what do you expect to come out of tomorrow's meeting with king abdullah? >> well, k
think also that he is looking at the fact that he has some democratic seats up for re-election in 2014. and in 2014. and in some states that it's going to be very difficult to hold. places like west virginia and arkansas. and so he's, he's really not quite ready. i think to sort of put his members on the line for this. so he will allow these to be offered as amendments from the floor. but there are also likely to be some amendments from the other side. it was interesting, too, to see vice president biden yesterday, up with mayor bloomberg. saying that the white house is basically not giving up this fight. but it sure doesn't seem how you get these things done. >> i thought, i'm glad you made that point. i thought joe biden saying -- remember newtown, pointing his finger, very telling. because particularly joe biden is someone who understands the math of the senate you've just laid out. john, do we, at this point, so now the big piece of the bill now appears to be background checks. can you give me your assessment of the political landscape? does that and the other few things that are a
days, three days before the election and scare the with its out of everybody. and a lot of these politicians know that. and there's a lot of fear of that. and a lot of concern about that. the truth is not going to come out. that's not what the letter's going to say when it hits. and the campaign they're going to run will say, they want to take away their guns, they want registration so the federal government can come in and take your guns away. that's what the debate will be. >> governor dean, as someone that had a strong rating from the nra, i want to point to some of the reaction comes from senators who are probably going to have a hard time on the vote on this bill. mark pryor says in a statement, with i don't take gun advice from the mayor of new york city. i listen to arkansans. there's a little bit more room in the statement from senator mary landrieu. senator landrieu has a great deal of respect for mayor bloomberg on a great deal issues, but the senator will be listening closely to her constituents on this issue. you hear that and look at the poll, it is overwhel
, and the republican national committee just out with a report, they are calling it the autopsy of the 2012 election. and they said we would have won if only we did a better job of getting our message out. good to have you with us and we're ready to give you a chance to join the conversation any time. give us a call at 866-55-press or join us on twitter -- actually you ought to do both, but if you want to talk to us on twitter, it's @bpshow, and on facebook, facebook/billpressshow. we are so excited this morning to welcome back to the studio. every once in a while we want to show that we are real people care. we really do care about sports. cindy is in studio again this morning. thanks for coming in. it's an exciting time we're ready to do our brackets this morning. >> i already have torn four of them up. this is one of those years where you are better to wait two minutes before tip-off and just filling it out and sending it in. and spend like two seconds on it. you can overthink this year. that's my theory. >> bill: all right. we're here with our whole team. of course we're coming
against that, and again, we had an election in november 2012. right? one of the issues was mitt romney with paul ryan has his running mate said we are going to privatize medicare turn into it a voucher system. the american people by a margin of almost 5 million people said we don't want that. third thing wrong is it repeals the affordable care act. it repeals obamacare, which has already kicked in. which has been there now two years, which the american people like, which is working, which even republican governors now have been buying into seven, i believe it is latest republican governors who have accepted the expansion of medicaid under obamacare. kids can stay on their parent's health insurance until they are 26. insurance companies can no longer deny kids coverage because they have a preexisting condition. by next year insurance companies won't be able to deny anybody coverage because they have a preexisting condition. that kicks in. and also these insurance exchanges making it possible for small businesses to ban together have been set up now in most states e
much about in the election last year, paul ryan keeps the savings that obamacare would generate, but eliminates the benefits. the revenues that come from some of the taxes on medical devices and other things, they keep the revenue that comes from the affordable care act, but they want to cut the benefits. so thouis is really about an ideology. the wealthiest americans have essentially captured the republican caucus. and what we see in the ryan budgity or in anything that has to do with the affordable care act, anything that has to do with the smart investments that we know we need to get the economy growing again, those are off the table. big tax cuts for the wealthiest americans that has to be made up by somebody and we know who that somebody is. >> thank you for coming in. there is no huge surprise that the ryan budget overwhelmingly passed in the house or that it failed in in the senate, but three senators voting against it, rand paul, ted cruz, mike lee. that's a new thing, tea partiers saying i'm even more conservative than paul ryan. is that the message? >> yeah. that is t
the country. we talked to over 50,000 people about the election, things they perceived went well. what the other side went well and things we didn't do that people wished we did. it was a full-blown analysis from everything to mechanics to campaign finance laws. >> greta: one of the questions, the perception according to you, is that the republican party-- >> according to polling. >> greta: a party of rich-- yeah, polling. party of rich, narrow, stuffy, out of touch people and you want to reach the minority, female and young. >> greta: how do you convince you have anything for them if you're part of the rich, stuffy-- >> and obviously that's perception. part of is if you're not showing up in the community, the perception and narrative becomes reality. when we announced yesterday and today is that the national party -- in 2013, mind you, after a presidential election, that's never been done, is just going to spend just on the political oranges itself 10 million dollars which will include hundreds, a few people down the hallway, but hundreds of people in communities across the country ad
relationship. both of them have been recently re-elected. they more or less are on the same wavelength when it comes to israel's security. and the two of them are going to do the best they can to make this trip a success for their own domestic political reasons as well. >> dana, ten years ago, as you know, we started a war on the basis of false information. today we're looking at a war in syria where the question of who is using chemical weapons, even if they are using them, can't be confirmed. is it your view, dana, that our reluctance to engage in syria is a direct result of our experience in iraq? >> well, certainly it's a response to that, martin, but also the situation in syria is a lot more ambiguous and is not exactly clear what can be done there. but certainly the hesitation in responding here, not necessarily hesitation, but a skepticism about whether reports are to be believed or not, is very specifically a reaction to the gullibility that was expressed a little over ten years ago that led us into that war. so that's why there is every reason to be taking this cautiously and slowl
that was thoroughly rejected by the american people last election. mitt roll any and paul ryan talked about the approach to the budget issues, the people in this country clearly said they didn't want to go in that direction. yesterday there was a vote on the house floor for that, unfortunately it passed with a lot of tea party members in the house. at the same time we still have not gotten a vote on common sense gun safety measures, the most obvious one being universal background checks, and as you said, speaker boehner had to walk back a proposal which called for the common-sense solution, because the tea party and others apparently bombarded his office when he made sense on this issue. so, look, the answer to this will require the american people to remain engaged and to demand that the victims in newtown, the victims in aurora, the victims of other mass shootings, and those who die every day from gun violence, that they get a vote in the house of representatives. >> but here's the problem, congressman. the polls is on the side of these common-sense measures. 57% support an assault weapon
with the american people and that will get you elected, but not this type of attitude now where the president gives with one hand and takes away with the other. the american people are smart. they're looking for results and not looking for finger pointing. election of 2012 is over. >> megyn: what happened was the president and the republicans had this war over first it was the fiscal cliff and the president kind of won that one and then it was the sequester and the president didn't really win that one and then his poll numbers started to drop precipitously and then came the charm offensive. >> well, we're only, you know, like a week after the charm offensive took place, so, what is motivating joe biden to be so off-message regarding the number one in charge. >> it was a democratic national committee campaign event which obviously is a partisan committee, but he to get republican election-- >> and there are cameras. >> i understand that, but he appeals to people in order he needs to get the house back and i'm very certain if paul ryan, john boehner, or mitch mcconnell went to rnc-- >> are they on th
different direction than the national democrats want to and winning elections with that approach. so there's a lot to be learned both by the failure of the romney campaign and the senate races and the successes the republicans have had at the state level. >> host: and we're taking your calls in this segment with grover norquist with americans for tax reform. the phone lines are open. democrats, 202-585-3880. republicans, 202-585-3881. independents, 202-585-3882. grover norquist known as an expert on some of these budget issues. you bring up the senate budget that we saw from budget chairwoman patty murray last week with. talk about that and how you think it compares to paul ryan's budget. >> guest: there are two major differences. they certainly go in different directions. the paul ryan budget balances in ten years and does not raise taxes. patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. so what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the $600 billion tax increase that obama won in january and the trillion dollars of obamacare tax

elected? and if so, what's sort of been the response from the community to your position? >> i am elected. i'm in my third term and i've been the sheriff for ten and the response has been overwhelming. in the last 18 hours received over 6, 700 e-mails and out of those only ten have been negative. all the rest have been supportive. >> greta: no doubt in your mind, you're not going to enforce these two laws. >> there's absolutely no doubt in my mind i will not enforce these laws because i can't, i won't, i don't have the desire or the will to do it. >> greta: sheriff, thank you for joining us, sir. >> thank you for having me. >> greta: also tonight the possibility of congress approving an assault weapons ban just got slimmer. senate democratic leaders are now removing the ban from the gun control measure that the senate is set to debate. instead, the assault weapons ban will be offered later as an amendment. and that is according to a sponsor senator dianne feinstein and the senate majority leader, harry reid saying he's concerned for the assault position would block passage of any bill at

what our elected representatives in the house and senate seem incapable of accomplishing. he's introduced legislation to address the epidemic of gun violence. governor, avid gun owner himself, today signed into new laws limiting ammunition clips to 15 rounds and requiring gun owners to pay for universal background checks. tragically he had to wait to sign the bill until after a press con frenz after the head of the department of corrections was shot and killed on his door shep. still shaken, the governor spoke about the need to limit high capacity magazines. >> it's that simple, these high-capacity magazines have potential to turn killers into killing machines. in certain circumstances, someone bent on destruction, even if they're slow just for a number of seconds, if that allows others to escape. >> julian epstein is a former counsel to the house judiciary committee and david is a nationally syndicated columnist and best-selling author who also lives in colorado. david, a mother whose daughter was killed in the aurora movie theater said the governor had, and i'm quoting her,
